    • Synopsis
    • Sawyer Scott is a smart and ambitious college senior who seems to have the world on a string. But beneath her veneer of invincibility she is vulnerable, uncertain, and obsessive. When a detour on the way to a job interview takes Sawyer through the frozen Appalachian Mountains, a series of calamities lands her in a life-or-death struggle. Wounded, lost, and hunted by dangerous criminals, Sawyer confronts her own mortality for the first time.

      Pushed to exhaustion by the elements, Sawyer finds an unlikely ally in Lowell Pritchert, a mysterious recluse whose motives for helping her are suspect. While both cops and criminals race to find her, Lowell’s mercurial temperament and troubled past threaten to drive her from the safety of his isolated trailer.

      As the desperate men hunting her close in, Sawyer and Lowell come up with a risky plan to get her to safety. It all leads to an explosive confrontation, a frantic race through the woods, and a deadly fight for survival in the freezing waters of Rust Creek.
